B&B La Estancia is a great spot for birders and nature lovers. Wildlife abounds around La Estancia. Sloths and monkeys often visit us in the trees just outside our balconies—at eye-level! Usually, during breakfast, hummingbirds put on quite a show as they swoop in to drink from the feeders. Be sure to allow time during your stay to just sit and enjoy the nature that surrounds us. A few of our Panama birding guests have sent us photos and lists of the birds they've spotted from our balconies.
